Plumbing Question

How long would it take to replace a macerator unit with standard outflow pipe

I would like the macerator unit in the downstairs toilet removed and replace with a standard outlfow pipe to the main stack pipe. This will require digging a channel approx 2.5 meters under the concrete base of the ground floor and the current pipes would need to be disconnected or removed.

Its always very difficult to estimate the time a job will take without seeing it, some more difficult than others and i would say digging up a concrete floor definately falls well within this catagory, however i would set aside at least two days for this kind of job they may not turn out to be full days but im assuming the floor needs to be re-instated and thats what ive based my very rough estimate on.
Hope this is helpful.
